the region will be a political and economic and military chaos. lou: president obama has said that a decade of war is near its end. peace is at hand, i guess. is that a prospective you share? >> no, that was never true. it was not true when he said it last year, and it's not true today. these wars are continuing. it simply means that we are not in the fight or not helping shape the outcome. the outcomes matter, whether in afghanistan, syria today than. our interests are at stake. there are ways in which we can help shape these outcomes favorably tell us into our friends and allies in the region without committing tens of thousands of ground troops. that is a strong man. he has assembled. so, again, it has to do with the strategy of foreign-policy. instead of seeing every issue as a transaction to move from your in box tiara box, this administration has a hard time understanding this week that is taking place across the arab world in developing a comprehensive response to it. lou: thank you for being with us. we appreciated. thank you. thank you both. up next, it turns out that president bus
at these legal pieces. now, the political piece of this, which is really interesting, is that the obama administration has a huge rule of law problem. they have got a rule of law problem moving back, meaning that the bush administration officials that were responsible for the illegality in the torture are not being prosecuted. they have a rule of law problem moving forward, which is they're trying to get these detainees through the eye of a political needle called the military commissions and they're trying to figure out what can we electrothrow on them? >> the process has been constructed around the paul 6 and the court decisions. >> let's make a broader pointing. i don't agree that rule of law has been thrown out the window. this is how it's important to get this right. as imperfect as the process has been under this president and the last one, if we don't get this right, if we don't get a tribunal process right, if we don't get the mechanisms right for assessing guilt and innocence among these people, that the battlefieldin sent i've is not to capture but to kill. that's something th
. so there's the political piece with congress and there's george bush, but here's what the obama administration can and should do. they're in the position to decide whether they are going to appeal this court ruling about conspiracy, right, the nonwar crimes, crimes. >> in which a court vacated a conviction. >> the obama administration should not appeal that conviction -- that decision because what that would do is it would move that whole process forward. it would give them a political footing to say, look, either we are a rule of law presidency or we are not and we have to abide by this. let's shift these trials to civilian courts and take the political heat on these things. we'll still get immigration passed, we'll still get gun control passed, but the state of our democracy, the foundation of our democracy rests on these next few days. >> i interviewed in january a famous detainee at guantanamo because of one of the most supreme court cases bears his name. when we come back, i want to play a little clip to remind people of the human stakes here. you talked about political pro

[applause] [applause] california was the first in the nation to pass laws to implement president obama's historic political career at. health benefit exchange called cover california will begin next year perverting assurance to nearly 1 million californians. with the rest this decade, california will steadily reduce the number of uninsured. today a call for a special session to do with those issues that must be decided quickly if california is to get the affordable care act started by next january. broader expansion of medi-cal is incredibly complex that will take more time. working out the right relationship of counties will test our ingenuity and not be achieved overnight. given the cost involved, great prudence should guide every step of the way. california lost 1.3 million jobs in the great recession, overcoming back at a faster pace than the national average. the nuance of business and economic development, gove is, one of the good bills -- [laughter] directly assisting more than 5000 companies this past year. one of those who stand some connectors headquartered in korea were tuba
obama: we cannot mistake absolutism for principle. substitute spectacle for politics or treat name calling as reasoned debate. [applause]. >> president barack obama: we must act. we must act, knowing that our work will be imperfect. >> chris: president obama in his inaugural address, dismissing the opposition to him, here in washington and it is time now for our sunday group: brit hume, fox news senior political analyst, jeff zeleny of "the new york times," kimberley strassel of the "wall street journal" and, fox news political analyst juan williams, and before we get to the president's inaugural for the second term i want to discuss the very important ruling by the circuit court of appeals here in washington, d.c. on friday. the president violated the constitution when he made three invalid, their words, appointments. to the nlrb, how big a deal? >> i think it is a very big deal and i think it will be hard to overcome, if the administration decides to appeal it and i say that for two reasons, one, the court basically threw out these nominations, appointments to the nlrb on two gro
there will be the emphasis on the enforcement side, but i think that obama will spend some political capital on the issue of how these 11 million undocumented aliens can become on the path to citizenship. >> and as someone who kns that process, who knows the complicated paperwork, who knows the frustration of waiting for the bureaucracy, do you think it can be done, you can have a path to earned citizenship, which somebody comes forward, gets first a green card, legal status and then in line for citizenship. can that be done in a way that is fair or as fair as possible in the sense that if there is someone who has been waiting legally, will the people already in this country actually go to the back of the line? that's what a lot of people suspect won't happen. >> well, the senate proposal and president obama have both said they will go to the back of the line. that line in some instances is years long for family reunification. it is one of the reasons that employers have said over and over that we need a simplified streamlined immigration system so that persons can be hired legally. and have a legal path
't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over

political advantage over the obama administration, over hillary clinton in particular over the attack in benghazi, what ended up looming unexpectedly large over these proceedings was how benghazi is not an unprecedented thing. the state department has had its personnel and its facilities in danger and facing different kinds of attack over and over and over and over again for decades all over the world. and the attempted political acrimony of today's hearing ended up kind of dead-ending today whenever secretary clinton would bring back what congress does not see as a priority does not see the safety that work at the state department and the resources to ensure that safety. and yes, there is a political agenda to be driven, always, always. but in terms of steps necessary to protect people, so far hillary clinton made the case today that congress has been against it, specifically right now, members of the republican-controlled house have been against it. >> we have asked the congress to help us real locate funds. the senate has given us that authority. we don't yet have it from the house
and in the obama administration for political reasons hav they have not wanteo release that regulation. so eve on youth and has gone as a nonprofit out to try to digitize the vital records, make that accessible to driver's license issuing agencies, and any other agency that needs it. it's the one piece of real id that has not come in well. and the states have complained that it is a cost issue. and i would love to hear your response to the issue of the cost of eve. because her us on the 9/11 commission's ipod, checking against that fraud of the birth certificate is one of the most vital things you can do is to check the vital records. he has done a tremendous job in digitizing those records, the ones i've gotten have been tremendous. what exactly are the issues with the states in terms of not implementing that these are real id? >> well, let me pashtun exactly. i'll just give you a delaware perspective of eve. and i think was alluded to before, it is extreme complicated where you have, we have a known number of jurisdictions issuing driver's license. there so many different levels of technolog
movement in american politics. their entire indictment of barack obama is, he's mean! that's pathetic. >> right. >> are you serious? >> yes, she is serious, ron. we just saw one of our fellow conservatives talking about the president's plan to outlaw fox news. actually all the president pointed out and i'm quoting was that if a republican member of congress is not punished by fox news or by rush limbaugh for working with a democrat on a bill of common interest, then you'll see more of them doing it. which i don't know, ron, sounds pretty obvious to me, but are you also losing sleep at night because you're afraid the president wants to take away your fox news and your guns? >> you know, i'm very happy to come on msnbc and say thank god for fox news. the fact of the matter is without fox news we'd still think that benghazi, that that attack, that terrorist attack happened because of a video. without katherine and special report and the hard news people. by the way, they have more hard news people than msnbc, cnn, and everybody else -- >> sorry, ron, ron, ron, i accept your analysis on b
with the political postscript and it started with president obama's second inauguration and was also highlighted by secretary of hillary clinton's testimony on benghazi and senator john kerry's confirmation hearing to be the next secretary of state. >> progress does not compel us to settle centuries long debates about the role of government for all time. but it does require us to act in our time. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk and decided to kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> i would take office as secretary proud that the senate is in my blood. but equally proud that so, too, is the foreign service. >> senator kerry referring there to his father serving as a diplomat. so he grew up as a child of a diplomat. as for president obama's remark there aiming to get congress to find some common ground, the senate last night approved changes to the filibu
of international safeguards. president obama refuses to knowledge iran's right to enrich. this would require acknowledging the islamic republic as a legitimate political order representing legitimate national interests and is a rising regional power unwilling to support its power to washington as for example washington regularly expected of egypt under sadat and mubarak. the society hillary a nice day obama has done more damage even than george w. bush because he's discredited the idea by saying he tried but failed when in fact he has not serious are tried. [inaudible] >> yes, that's fine. no american president has been prepared to do this, to accept the islamic republic. and this is a key argument. this is the only diplomacy can succeed. there is an important precedent for this in modern american history. it's appropriate to call the cinema and month in which richard nixon come with birthday falls. nixon and kissinger's of maine to china. their great achievement was not that the type to beijing. the united states had been talking for years and ambassadorial level talks that had gone nowhere
at a bipartisan manner when acting in government. >> and here is the other striking political moment. john mccain explains what he thinks will be necessary to pass this bill, including what he calls the leadership of president obama. let's listen to this. >> i am confident the majority of both houses, led by the president of the united states, who made this a major campaign issue, that we will succeed. but we're not going to get everybody on board. >> steve kornacki, nothing provprove s more strongly than that, that elections do have consequences. >> i can't help but think with john mccain, you're looking at a protection of legacy there. his reputation as a maverick was a bit over sold, what it really reflects, the guy is a sore loser, we saw it in the wake of the 2002 election. he was a very conservative member of the senate who happened to lose to george w. bush and took out all the grudges of george w. bush, then he was a mavericky liberal. went back to the right, now you have a guy here his term is going to be up in 2016. he will be 80 years old. this is an issue he really cares about and
for politics. or treat name calling as reasoned debate. we must act. we must act knowing that our work will be imperfect. >> chris: president obama in his inaugural address dismissing the opposition to him here in washington. it is time for the the sunday group. brit hume fox news senior political analyst. jeff zeleny of the new york times. kimberly strassel from the "wall street journal" and fox news political analyst juan william. before we get to the inaugural and the president's agenda for the second term i want to discuss the very important ruling by the circuit court of appeals here in washington, d.c. on friday that the president violated the constitution when made three invalid their words appointments to the nlrb. brit, how big a deal? >> i think it is a very big deal and i think that it going to be a little hard to overcome if the administration decides to appeal it. two reasons. one is the court basically threw out the appointments to the nlrb on two grounds principally. one was and this was a ground breaking ruling that only between sessions of congress when congress isn't
to preserve a program that is politically sustainable. that is pretty much what we thought we did. that is the dialogue we have with the incoming obama administration. i began my longest conversation with them at the agency, something along the lines of i think we have already done what you have done. it is appropriate in the new circumstances. it did not hold. all american detainees under any agent of the american government have to be treated with the army field manual. it was proved in september 2006. i would suggest the casual manual was written with the knowledge that there was option b. that this program was also available. now we are left with this option a. it should not concern you. before you get to interrogation, you have to capture and we do not capture. we have made it so legally difficult and so politically dangerous to capture that it seems to the outside looking in that the default option is to take the terrorists off the battlefield in another way. >> could you talk a bit about what obama inherited? we had moderate sleep deprivation. tummy slap. a diet of liquid e
that president obama is not looking to moderate and move to the middle but is instead looking for a political fight. >> i decided not to comment between the election and the inauguration because i wanted to see what kind of president we're looking at here? what kind of path and trajectory he was putting his administration on. all of the statements and all of the comments lead me to believe he is thinking more of a political conquest than political compromise. and that is my concern. jon: ryan also focused on the nation's fiscal crisis saying only significant spending cuts, not tax reform, will solve the deficit problem. that is something is he thinks the president is missing. >> i don't think that the president thinks we actually have a fiscal crisis. he has been reportedly saying to our leaders we don't have a spending problem, we have a health care problem. that leads me to conclude he thinks we ought to have more government-run health care and rationing. i don't think that is going to work. jon: let's get back to karl rove. karl, what about his thoughts on a president bent on conquest? >>
the problem is the exact same for president obama today as it was in 2011. and frankly, that it was before that from him. what has changed is his political assessment, that what he wanted for the country before but he could not get, now he is going to get. now it is possible. policy-wise, he has stayed in exactly the same place for all of this time. what has moved is the republicans. >> now the good news is that for the first time in many years, republicans and democrats seem ready to tackle this problem together. at this moment, it looks like there is a genuine desire to get this done soon. and that's very encouraging. but this time action must follow. i'm here today because the time has come for commonsense comprehensive immigration reform. the time is now. now is the time. now is the time. now is the time. >> si se puede! si se puede! >> now is the time. >> according to washington, he is right. according to washington, now apparently is the time. not because the president's policy proposals or the problem itself have changed one iota from where they were during his first term, but becau
of the obama machine. >> if i can follow up quickly, we saw mackerel politics in this election and i was shocked by it. it has got to be filtered down into micro targeting. have a national election anymore. we had an election of about eight states. the obama people were smart enough to figure that out. they went to those eight states and in line data. they did it on facebook, all these other places. they killed us. they spent tens of millions of dollars. chris christies stock in june. looking at the records, we are in trouble. millions of dollars, it was the 2012 equivalent of what i did in 1994. i had no money, so for a year, i went door to door knocked on doors. i did not talk to anyone else for 18 months. outside of that, they focused on it. we have to get past this idea. it is going to break the last weekend because 30,000 people at the pennsylvania rally, how exciting. 35,000 people were crazy. they said i have never seen anything like it. the election was over because obama as people targeted voters, found them on line, dragged them out, people calling three times in one day on
obama equal hitler. russell he needs to use the one hitler used.y political figure they know is hitler. so they use tight reference everybody. >> stephanie: that's right. tinker red, can't compare obama to president lincoln, more like obama and hitler. obama has not done mass genocide yet but he will, give him time. read your history books on hitler, you will see obama is doing everything that hitler did. then he says if obama really knows his history, he wouldn't be using the bible by lincoln. lincoln had slaves too. [ buzzer ] >> he is thinking of thomas jefferson. >> computer says no! >> hitler was our first president and he had slaves! [ laughter ] >> herp derp. >> stephanie: the right-wing is going crazy, because for the first time the president used the word "gay." >> right. and they were just saying oh my god, yes, it was like he was -- like a communist, the way he was giving his inaugural address. >> stephanie: take a listen to american family radio. >> i believe in equality of the law for homosexuals just like i do for everybody else. however, homo
. the second coming. now, conservatives have long complained that president obama thinks that of himself, but now, cal, they have he' made it official, i guess. >> he was treated the first time around and i think the media put too much faith in politics and government because it reflects their particular ideological bias and they really -- they're setting him up for a no-fail second term. they're not going to hold him accountable and didn't hold him accountable in the first term and afraid of being branded racist and they agree with him. one mentioned al roker embarrassed himself. he wasn't alone. >> jon: and the new york times which complained about george w. bush spending 40 million dollars on his second inauguration, jim touched on this, the inauguration and ceremonies for inauguration in war time, a lingering question of tone. that was all about george w. bush's second inaugural. and then for barack obama's spending 50 million on his second inauguration, the times wrote, fund raising is lagging so far for inaugural plans. and lamenting the fact that in this economy, 50 million dollar
magic of the obama machine. there was no counterweight. >> if i could follow quickly -- macro politics -- we saw it in this election, and i was shocked by it. macro politics has got to be filtered down into micro targeting. we do not have a national election anymore. we did not have a national election for president this year. we had an election of about eight states. the obama people were smart enough to figure that out. republicans were not. they went into those eight states and mined data. they did it on facebook, twitter, in all these places. they killed us. they spent tens of millions of dollars -- chris christie's top aide went to him in june and said he had been looking at obama's records and that they were in trouble. millions and millions and millions of dollars finding people. it was the 2012 equivalent of what i did in 1994. i had no money, so i got the super republican list, and for a year, i went door-to-door and walked on doors of republicans that voted in primaries. i did not talk to anybody else for 18 months. my kids, my wife, a little bit, but outside of that -- but t
